Yellow Tomato Salad with Roasted Red Pepper, Feta, and Mint

In Utah it’s still too hot to cook, but luckily around here the garden is bursting with fresh produce and herbs, inspiring me to create salads like this very colorful one I had for lunch recently. The name of this recipe should be “Yet Another Reason I Love My Garden” and we’re definitely celebrating garden produce at my house.

Besides the lovely lemon boy tomatoes from my garden, what makes this salad flavorful is using roasted red pepper from a jar, marinated in the dressing for a few minutes before it’s added to the salad. I just love roasted red pepper, and using the jarred red pepper made this ultra fast to put together. Of course, you can roast your own red peppers too, which would only make a really great salad even better. If you don’t have yellow tomatoes use whatever kind of fresh tomatoes are available, but if you have a vegetable garden, I highly recommend the lemon boy tomatoes for next year.

Make it a Meal:

I ate this as a lunch salad, but for dinner it would taste great with something like Lamb Souvlaki or Steak with Olive Sauce.

Yellow Tomato Salad with Roasted Red Pepper, Feta, and Mint

Yellow Tomato Salad with Roasted Red Pepper, Feta, and Mint is a great lunch when it’s too hot to cook!

Ingredients:

Ingredients

  • 4-5 large yellow tomatoes (or use whatever type of vine-ripened tomatoes are available)
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped roasted red bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2 T crumbled feta
  • sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice (could also use balsamic vinegar, but I love the combination of lemon with mint)

Directions:

  1. Chop red peppers and place in small bowl.
  2. Whisk together olive oil and lemon juice, stir into peppers and let them marinate while you prep other ingredients.
  3. Wash tomatoes, wipe dry, cut out stem end, then cut into bite-sized pieces. (If the tomatoes are extra juicy, you may want to drain them in a colander for a minute, although this juice is the most flavorful part of the tomato, so if you don’t mind having a juicy salad, skip this step.)
  4. Wash mint and chop, and crumble feta.
  5. Put tomatoes, peppers with dressing, and mint into a bowl and gently combine.
  6. Arrange salad on individual plates, crumble feta over , and serve at room temperature.

Notes:

I always use my favorite feta for this recipe.

Only make as much as you can eat, since tomatoes should never be refrigerated, (On Food and Cooking, page 331.)
